Rent-A-Cop tried to recapture the magic that Reynolds and Minnelli shared in Lucky Lady (1975), but instead succumb to being one of the cheesiest action flicks of all time

Rent-a-Cop barely packs five bucks worth of action, suspense and romance. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Another faceless Reynolds crime caper that handcuffs the audience's appreciation for real arresting comedy. As defective as a broken police siren

Rating: 3/5 -- Minnelli's portrayal of a hooker is poorly written and difficult to accept, but everything else in the plot flows comfortably.

Rating: 2/4 -- Rent-A-Cop is a collision between a relationship and a cliche, and the cliche wins, but not before the relationship has given us some nice moments. Full Review

Jerry London's direction is efficient but lacking in the touch or the material needed to mate a romantic comedy with a run-of-the-studio shoot-'em-down. Full Review

...Burt Reynolds and Liza Minnelli play off each other beautifully. Minnelli is all super-charged intensity...

Product Description:

Detective Tony Church is forced to retire and become a store rent-a-cop when his drug sting operation comes to a tragic end by a masked killer. He joins forces with a prostitute, the only one able to identify the killer, to bring him to justice.

Plot Synopsis:

A crusty Chicago cop is forced to turn in his badge when he is wrongly accused of being in cahoots with a sinister, murderous, drug dealer. Subsequently, the cop is "rented" by a kooky call girl, whom the pusher wishes to kill. Hijinks ensue when the mismatched duo team up, and attempt to nab the nefarious villain themselves.
